Last Week: Summer Quarter 2012

Four days left and this quarter is over. Three tests on Thursday, leaving that night to go to CT for my cousin’s baptism.

I’ll reflect more later, but this quarter has been really weird for me. I’ve loved it, but at the same time I am not happy. I don’t think I have been happy for a while now. At least with the broad aspect of life; concerning school, I am happy.

I think the next five months will be very good for me; by moving away I think I will find myself. I need to find out when I got lost.

Project 1

Project 1

 

4th week in, 1st project done. 2nd project in the works/making. 3rd project starting today/this week.

This first project is a case study on a local building, in this case: St. Monica Church. Through tectonics, we were challenged to abstract the building though line, plane and mass–as well as spacial zoning.

Unlike last quarter, where it was all about concept and how our design was propelled by that, this quarter is more about spacial organization and using that organization to guide us in our design process. So far, it’s a lot of abstraction–which is something that I had previously thought was difficult for me (at least when it comes to painting and drawing), but so far it hasn’t been problematic–just a good amount of thinking.

This quarter is also all about modeling, which, I must admit, is something that I’ve never claimed to be amazing at–I know some studio-mates with impeccable craft which always makes me drool.

so. I decided that this quarter, my goal would be to consciously work on my hand-skill/craft. So far, so good.
